Gaza City: Five people have been killed and 21 others injured in another Israeli shelling east of the city of Jabalia in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said on Tuesday.

“The PRCS ambulance team in Jabalia, northern Gaza, transported several martyrs and injuries today while PRCS’s medical post in Jabalia dealt with five martyrs and 21 injuries due to the Israeli occupation’s shelling east of Jabalia,” the PRCS wrote on X.

On October 7, 2023, Hamas launched a large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip while its fighters breached the border, opening fire on the military and civilians. As a result, over 1,200 people in Israel were killed and some 240 others abducted. Israel launched retaliatory strikes, ordered a complete blockade of Gaza and launched a ground incursion into the Palestinian enclave with the declared goal of eliminating Hamas fighters and rescuing the hostages. Over 25,000 people have been killed so far in the Gaza Strip as a result of Israeli strikes, local authorities said.

On November 24, Qatar mediated a deal between Israel and Hamas on a temporary truce and the exchange of some of the prisoners and hostages, as well as the delivery of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip. The ceasefire was extended several times and expired on December 1.
